In today's political climate, where image seems to be everything, it's an interesting question: Does the right suit have the power to clinch the presidency? This savvy satire by Jon Robin Baitz (Other Desert Cities) examines the roles of an Iranian tailor and his apprentice as confidants and image-makers to a very unusual client: a blustering real-estate tycoon and reality TV star who's become the unlikely presidential nominee of a major political party and who happens to be looking for the perfect custom suit to wear in the final debate against an unnamed female opponent. Vicuña premiered prior to the 2016 election, but this sharp-witted comedy remains all too timely and is tailor made for anyone looking for a much-needed laugh.
